The Danish Injury Register records accident and emergency contacts following accidents and contains detailed information about injured parties and events in accidents.
The register is not nationwide. It covers accident and emergency records at hospitals in Glostrup, Herlev (only up to and including 2006), Frederikssund, Esbjerg and Randers, and so it covers about 12% of the Danish population and is generally representative of the population as a whole with respect to age and gender.
The catchment area was the extended to cover Djursland in 2004 and 2005, and more municipalities in southern Jutland from 2004. Because of this and changes in access to Accident & Emergency (triage, night closures), caution should be exercised when comparing data from year to year.
From 1990 and up to 2010 (when funding for data gathering ended), the National Institute of Public Health (SIF) collated data for the Accident Register.
